I used to be a lumen junky, but nowadays, it's all about use! Ever since I got the HDS edc rotary, I've been content! I can momentary/click on at ultra-low low. Click press for full on high, and rotate anywhere in between. I can locate beacon or strobe with a couple clicks, and I can even 5-click into an led candle mode for tellin' spooky stories around this time of year.
